Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 56,149 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then CGA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $4.37 to $4.56 a share. Any high-volume move above $4.56 will then put $4.64 to $4.75 a share into focus for CGA.Traders can look to buy CGA off any weakness and simply use a stop that sits close to some near-term support levels at $3.20 to $3.11 a share. One can also buy off strength once CGA takes out those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits right around its 50-day moving average of $3.39 a share.
